1000 B-2 flying hours milestone achieved by 131st Bomb Wing Pilot

A closeup of the 1000 hours flying patch worn by B-2 pilots who have achieved this milestone in flying the B-2 bomber. There are almost 500 pilots who have flown the B-2 Spirit, but only about 30 who have reached 1,000 flying hours. Four of these elite pilots are 131st Bomb Wing Missouri Air National Guard members at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo: Lt. Col. Michael Means who achieved this milestone almost three years ago while on active duty; Lt. Col. Rhett Binger, Jun 2009; and Maj. Jared Kennish, Oct.2009; and Maj. John Avery, Mar. 2010.
